Trailblazing Northumberland Trust's Work Held As Example

16:00 Saturday 01 August 2015.
Trailblazing work on a north Northumberland housing project has been applauded in national research which calls for more funding so others can follow its example.

Glendale Gateway Trust, based in Wooler, is one of just 10 projects chosen to feature in the national research by Locality, which underlines that when it comes to community-led housing, small is beautiful – and very successful.

Community organisations like Glendale Gateway Trust can and should be building their own housing, the national network of ambitious and enterprising community-led organisations stresses, after its new research found that small-scale housing is a lynchpin community activity which leads to many other local benefits.
